What is Climate Sunday?
The Climate Sunday initiative is calling on all local churches across Great Britain & Ireland to hold a climate-focused service on any Sunday before 5 September 2021. At this service, congregations are encouraged to make a commitment to greater action to address climate change in their own place of worship and community and to use their voice to tell politicians we want a cleaner, greener, fairer future at the heart of plans agreed during COP26.
A selection of service materials and themed resources are available for all denominations and traditions. Our vision is to leave a lasting legacy of thousands of UK churches better equipped to address this critical issue as part of their normal discipleship and mission; and to make a very significant contribution to civil society efforts to secure adequate national and international action at the start of this most critical decade.
Hold a climate-focused service, to explore the theological and scientific basis of creation care and action on climate, to pray, and to commit to action.
An ecumenical resource created for Creation Time 2020 by writers drawn from a variety of church backgrounds and pastoral contexts is available thanks to Eco-Congregation Scotland, Faith Nurture Forum and Weekly Worship of the Church of Scotland.
